Leon said the opening of its first drive-thru restaurant yesterday was a “significant milestone” for the business.
The healthy fast food chain believes the site, in Gildersome, Leeds could pave the way for it to expand into more roadside locations around the UK.
The Gildersome unit near Morley on the A650 Wakefield Road is close to the M62 and M621 junctions, and will offer regular menu items alongside a series of exclusive dishes and “Leon firsts”.
It will also host some of Leon’s most exciting new innovations, including an exclusive collaboration to market Karma Soda on draft, providing the first clean, additive-free and ethical draft soda offer.
Glenn Edwards, managing director of Leon Restaurants, said: “This is a significant milestone for Leon. We are excited to be opening our first ever Drive Thru restaurant in West Yorkshire, expanding our Leon family where we already have such a loyal fanbase.
“The new drive-thru will be joining our restaurants in Leeds train station, Leeds delivery kitchen and Leeds Skelton Lake motorway services offering Yorkshire even more opportunity to try naturally fast food whilst creating 30 new jobs for talented local people.”
Leon operates 70 restaurants throughout the UK and in the Netherlands, Ireland, and Gran Canaria.
